Tweet of the Day: Oh Bob, how we love thee

"(David Luiz plays football as if he is) controlled by a 10-year-old in the crowd on a Playstation."
-Sky Sports pundit and all-around good guy Gary Neville

Bob's response?

How can you not love this kid?

Speaking of Bob, Andre Villas-Boas jumped into the fray today amid the plethora of criticism the young Brazilian defender has been receiving of late.

David is an extremely good player. He’s quick, anticipates well, has amazing technical qualities. You don’t get central defenders with his technical ability and talent, so he’s an evolving central defender. He’ll evolve into one the best central defenders in the world.

Look at Gerard Pique – it didn’t work for him at Manchester United, but he went to Barcelona and has become one of the best in the world. He was criticised at United, I’m sure, but look at him now.

People say his decision-making is a problem, that he flies into tackles, but that is based on his reading and anticipation of the game, and reading and anticipation of actions is a quality. If that anticipation comes with extra aggressiveness, that’s for the referee to decide.

Hear, hear. I just hope this doesn't mean Bob is to take his talents to España in the near future.
